It’s crunch time for gift shopping.

And unless you’re super organized, chances are you still have some presents left to buy on your list. But what to buy?

Sure, you could go for the standard two pack of socks or a pyjama set but they’re just so passé. This year, wow your loved ones with a really unique and thoughtful gift – like one of these specialty items that you can personalize with the London Drugs Photolab in-store or online.

By using the London Drugs Photolab app (available for iOS and Android), the Photolab website, or in-store kiosks, you can simply upload images to create epic custom gifts. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of six cool things you can easily create with the app.

Instagram books

Everyone has at least one Instagram-mad friend and this is the perfect gift for them. All you have to do is select 20 photos and choose whether you want to have the pages printed on glossy or pearl photo paper. And it gets better, it only takes 24 hours to make and you can pick it up in-store or have it delivered to your home. #Winning.

Custom greeting cards

You really don’t have to go down the mainstream route when it comes to cards. Instead, choose your favourite photos (pet images included) and have some holiday cards made to give to your friends and family. Folded cards, flat cards and postcards can even be customized with specialty card stocks like linen white and shimmer soft gold, or use the traditional thick greeting card stock.


Mugs/London Drugs Photolab

‘Tis the season to warm up with a mug of hot chocolate or cinnamon spice tea and you can make someone’s holiday even better by getting them a custom mug with the cutest photo printed on it. Talk about spreading some warmth! These make a great last minute gift, as they can be ordered and picked up same day.

Photo ornaments

Pet bowl

A dog’s gotta eat. This pet bowl is available in two sizes and is a must for the pooch in your life or the dog lover in your life. It also works for cat lovers, too, of course.
